Welcome to The Andrew Lloyd Webber Initiative Application Process

Now in its 8th year, the American Theatre Wing's Andrew Lloyd Webber Initiative supports theatre education opportunities for underserved young people and under-resourced public schools across the United States. This initiative is an expansion of the work that the multi-Tony Award-winning composer and producer has been doing to promote and fund arts education through his Foundation in the United Kingdom. It serves to both strengthen and expand the Wing’s core mission of nurturing the next generation of theatre makers and patrons.

The Andrew Lloyd Webber Initiative consists of three separate components:

This grant-giving program provides funding directly to under-resourced public schools to provide instruments, dance floors, lighting grids, and other necessary materials to help create new and enhance existing theatre programs.

The applications for the 2023- 2024 Classroom Resources Grants is now closed.

Funding goes towards covering the costs associated with sending select students to summer study and after-school training programs. 

Applications for the 2023 Training Scholarships are now closed.

Scholarship support and additional opportunities are provided to select students to pursue theatre studies at the University level. 

Applications for the 2025 University Scholarships will open May 2024
